Amman, 2 March 2014
His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday underlined Jordan’s commitment to further improving cooperation with Morocco in all areas.
At a meeting with Moroccan Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane, King Abdullah called for activating the work of the Joint Jordanian-Moroccan Higher Committee.
Talks also covered the efforts to bring about peace in the Middle East that should lead to the establishment of a viable and independent Palestinian state on Palestinian national soil with East Jerusalem as its capital, in line with the two-state solution and the international terms of reference, especially the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative.
Regarding the situation in Syria, His Majesty reiterated Jordan’s stance in supporting a comprehensive political resolution to the crisis that would end the bloodshed and preserve the unity and cohesion of the country.
The King highlighted the burden Jordan is enduring due to hosting the largest number of Syrian refugees.
